A SAMPLER BY EK DATED 1653

Brilliant and extreme color combinations, complex floral patterns, extreme length, and a pleasing symmetry are demonstrated in this striking band sampler. The crisp, vivid color still remains on the front of the sampler. Patterns include reversed and formal honeysuckle, Stuart S motifs, acorns, daisies, boxers bearing fruits, strawberries, lilies, and carnations.
